Sustainable Style in the Sun
Planet Flops has saved the day and the planet. Created by Dr. Sylvia Wolkowisky, a Beverly Hills podiatrist, flip flop fan, and founder of Dr. ShoeMom, these flip flops are stylish, comfortable, and eco-friendly since they are made from natural rubber rather than synthetic, petroleum based rubber. The rubber in Planet Flops comes from the rubber tree (Hevea Brasiliensis) in a process that does not harm the trees. Even better, the use of the rubber actually lends support for preserving the trees in the Brazilian rainforests.
